An Injury Update & Finding The Silver Lining


It’s now been about 3 weeks since I decided to take a break from running due to aggravating my knee while lifting a heavy box during the move. I thought I would give you guys a bit of an update and let you know how things are going. Of course, running on an already sore […]


Green Monster Vegan Overnight Oats & Getting Back Into Running


After a 1 week break from workouts, I finally felt like I had enough energy to get back into exercise yesterday. My body was literally craving a run! It was also a good excuse to take a much needed break from unpacking. For some pre-run fuel, I tried out a Vega snack bar that I […]


Getting My Frosty On


It’s official: I’m hooked on 5k races! My second 5k race is under my belt…err…bib, after yesterday’s Frosty 5k race in Burlington. I had such a blast. There was also a half marathon going down…kudos to the brave souls who ran it yesterday! Unlike my last 5k race a few weeks ago, the skies were […]


Busting Boredom on the Treadmill: 5 Mile & 5km Workouts


When I hear the word treadmill, a few words come to mind: Boring. Repetitive. Dull. Auto-repeat. Nooooooooooooooooooo. You too? My reaction is mostly because I tend to fall into major treadmill ruts. I’ve recently discovered if I don’t consciously make an effort to create interesting treadmill workouts, then I really only have myself to blame […]


Old Man Winter Vs. Heart of Gold


Leave it to Old Man Winter to arrive promptly before my first race in almost 16 months. Impeccable timing, Old Man. I swear, it was mild and there was no snow on the ground when I booked the race. As soon as I booked, a storm moved in on the weekend and the temperature plummeted. […]


Rekindling a Love for Racing


Have you ever had a hobby or activity that you love and let it get away for a while? And a lot of time goes by and you start to wonder if you’ll ever get back into it? That’s sort of what happened to me with running races. In 2009, I got hooked on races […]


5 Mile Pick-Up Run & My Fav Workout Playlist


Aside from the relentless cloud cover and rain we’ve been hit with lately, the temperatures have been fairly warm for November! I’ve been getting outside for runs this week, trying to soak up every last degree of warmth. Yesterday, I had a great run that I like to call the “5-mile pick-up run”. With each […]


7 Workouts I’m Loving This Summer


This past Spring, I challenged myself to include more variety in my workouts. After a long Winter, I found myself in a workout rut and I knew I needed to mix things up. In May, I fell in love with Hot Yoga and it renewed my enthusiasm for trying new forms of exercise. Since then, […]


Speedy Running Strategies & Summer Running Goals


Back in the day, I used to be into all that crazy track and field stuff. High jump, shot put, long jump, relay, and sprints. Short distance sprints were always my favourite event. I loved the intense, breathless pace and the thrill of not knowing who would cross the finish line first. Sometimes I won, […]


Lovely & Light Cranberry, Apple, and Almond Quinoa


I finally got around to ordering a new pair of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 10’s! Stank-free and blinding white. ;) I discovered Brooks Adrenaline last Spring when I had a special fitting done at Fit 2 Run in Sarasota, Florida. I suffered from chronic blisters for a couple years and it caused me a lot of […]
